Welcome to the Home Page for BSA Troop 247. We are part of the Dulaney District in the Baltimore Area Council.
We are proud to be chartered by the Baltimore County Game and Fish Protective Association and meet at their facility on 3400 Northwind Road in the Carney/Perry Hall area of Baltimore County. We are currently 53 scouts / 7 patrols strong.
The Boy Scout model is to be "Boy Led / Adult Guided". Here, the Scouts are in charge and make the decisions about weekly/monthly agendas and choosing our monthly camping destinations. Adult leaders provide an environment that allows boys to experience what it means to be a "boy scout". Our strong weekly attendance, fantastic facilities, and attraction of boys from all around the Baltimore Area confirms our "old school" approach is exactly what boys are searching for.
If this sounds like something you (or your son) would be interested in for yourselves, PLEASE feel free to stop by and visit us any Tuesday night at 7 PM. If you have any questions about Scouting or the way this troop operates, please check out our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page.
We especially welcome:
- 2nd years Webelos Scouts and parents searching for a Boy Scout troop that is right for them
- Current Boy Scouts who may be "bored" or having other issues in their current troops
- Former Scouts who may have quit before giving another troop a try
